We've found that the best solution to a complex problem often comes from not just bringing together, but seeking out, different perspectives or a fresh point of view.

Diversity and inclusion are key to our mission of building extraordinary teams that deliver unparalleled results for our firm and our clients. We embrace diversity, recognizing the value that comes from each individual. More importantly, we strive to create an environment where every individual can bring their authentic self to their teams, fully contributing their own skills, perspectives, experiences, and opinions.

This isn’t easy. It requires us to be open, observant and honest with ourselves and each other. To have the thoughtful dialogues, and to hold ourselves accountable for contributing to an inclusive culture. It also requires efforts such as our global ally network – where everyone can formally be involved in our diversity & affinity groups - to engage each other in driving change.

Our mission is to drive transformative social impact by applying Bain talent in partnership with the most innovative and effective organizations to address some of the world's most pressing issues. We partner with organizations that have pioneered and scaled models of change that demonstrably work, but often lack access to strategic consulting that would help them reach their full potential. This is why Bain & Company made a commitment in 2015 to invest $1 billion in pro bono consulting work over 10 years.

Our social impact work focuses on two critical issues: improving the futures of underserved children and youth, and fostering inclusive and sustainable economic growth. Learn more about our focus areas,  partnerships, and how our people take action.

We’re also proud to share that we have led the industry as a 100% CarbonNeutral Company since 2012, offsetting all emissions, including client travel.

    Difficult Interview


    I applied through college or university. I interviewed at Bain & Company.


    The interview was friendly and consisted of some personal (leadership, experience, etc.) questions and cases. The cases were interesting and novel, and the interviewers seemed to really want to get to know me. They were also open about their experiences at the firm.
